Story And Star Wars 10: Q&A From The Cantina
How do we parse the critical response to The Force Awakens? What's right with Finn, wrong with Kylo Ren, and paradoxical about Darth Jar Jar?
The best dissertation that I have ever heard on SW. It’s clear the host is a fan, but he reaches past his fandom to present a clinical analysis of all the good and bad of our favorite galaxy. These podcasts made me look at the movies differently.
This was the best Star Wars Podcast
I don’t remember how many times I brought this podcast up during Star Wars discussions, but if you love a literary approach of breaking down the films into 3 acts and discussing each part for tempo and plot, this is your podcast. The host is an English Professor and Star Wars fanboy — like almost to a fault — which is great because when he talks about the films, he is honest and objectively reviewing both the good and bad. You know he wants to just love ever bit of it, but hes stepping away from his fanboy love to give a legitimate literary review. He completed all the films up to Rise of Skywalker, but fell off at that point. I really wish he would come back and finish, and even address the shows for future content. I would be willing to support the podcast if he did, but unfortunately I jumped on the wagon late and don’t want to throw money at a dead cast
Interesting commentary but apparently this guy is a monstrous DB. Don’t look for him to finish the sequel trilogy, I think he is laying low to avoid the consequences of a life spent poorly.
His ex claims he plagiarized his ideas, but who cares. It’s Star Wars, not a dissertation on the plays of Christopher Marlowe. He gives a pretty good analysis of the films.
